“A Conversation With Candice Olson…The Business Of Great Design: Create, Manage And Evolve Your Brand”
Join us as WithIt celebrates its 20th year with an informative and “divine” visit from one of America’s favorite designers. Candice Olson, recognized worldwide for her HGTV design shows “Divine Design,” “Candice Tells All” and “Design Star,” is known for communicating her signature style and trademark sense of humor, making viewers feel like they’ve stopped by a friend’s design project. At WithIt’s Education Breakfast she brings that warmth in person, pulling up a comfy chair and chatting with both a moderator and the attendees.
Candice will share how she has grown her design brand from her “one to watch” interior design firm, to demonstrating her skills on camera, to developing licensed products. She understands that design may be an art, but creating a successful design brand is a skill that must be studied and practiced. She’s here to answer the nuts-and-bolts questions of vision and execution, give practical insights on the business aspects, and to provide an opportunity for designers, retailers, manufacturers and professionals in the industry to ask her their own questions. You will leave the WithIt Education Breakfast inspired, excited and ready to grow your own brand.
